Shoe brand honcho Steve Madden put his best foot forward and stepped into an impressive spread at 252 East 57th Street. The Journal reports that the company’s founder and former CEO dropped $12.2 million on a five-bedroom condo at the 65-story Billionaires’ Row tower designed by designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. Not only does his new home have a 38-foot-long living/dining area, balcony, and all the swanky fixtures and finishing one could hope for, but its 61st-floor location affords it incredible north, east, and west exposures with skyline, Central Park, and East River views.
Like all residences in the curved glass building, the unit’s interiors were designed by Daniel Romualdez. Madden’s new digs are spread across 4,624 square feet and feature two rounded windows formed by the tower’s signature progression of inverted bay windows.
Other features include a balcony, 11-and-a-half-foot ceilings, a working fireplace, white oak floors, and a high-end kitchen by Eggersmann. The master bedroom has two full bathrooms and three walk-in closets, and the other four bedrooms also have en-suites.
Residents have access to an impressive collection of amenities, including a gated porte cochere and automated parking garage, 75-foot pool, spa with hydrotherapy, fitness center with studios for spinning and yoga, billiards room, dog play space and grooming station, game rooms, and a 70-foot terrace.
Madden seems to prefer the east side; he also owns a townhouse on East 73rd Street, which he briefly tried to unload for $11 million last year.
